After previously being launched for corporate and local government users, C+pod today officially starts greeting Japanese consumers.
The Toyota C+pod comes in two variants, namely G and X with a price tag of 1,716,000 yen and 1,650,000 yen.
So what are the differences between the two C+pod variants? Starting from the display, the G variant gets more colors while the X appears plain.
As the most expensive variant, the C+pod G gets 13-inch tinned rims with hubcaps and a two-tone or three-tone painted body option.
No kidding, Toyota provides five two-tone color options and three three-tone color options for the C + pod G.
While the X variant only gets a white resin body and a black resin roof without paint, door handles and black mirrors, and can rims without hubcaps.
Entering the cabin, both variants have a fairly similar interior with a plastic dashboard and two cloth seats.
The difference is that there are things that “disappear” in the X variant. For example, there are no side air vents and the knob in the middle of the dashboard is missing because the variant does not have air conditioning.
Then the start & stop buttons are absent in the X variant because only the G variant gets a wireless key.
In terms of performance, the C+pod variants G and X both get an AC Synchronous Motor 1RM electric motor with a maximum power of 9.2 kW or 12.5 hp and a torque of 56 Nm.
The electric motor supplies power from a 51 Ah Lithium-ion battery with a total capacity of 9.06 kWh.
Once charged, the Toyota C+pod battery is claimed to be able to cover a distance of 150 kilometers according to Japan’s Worldwide Harmonized Light Vehicle Test Cycle (WLTC).
